Exciting Times in the Accounts Department

Front Cover
Sinclair-Stevenson, Jan 1, 1995 - Broadcasters - 236 pages
Paul Vaughan finds himself hopefully seeking his fortune - and a profession - in post-war London. The 8:32 to Loughborough Junction takes him to an old-fashioned family firm, a little world where everyone is polite, where the entire office empties for the annual outing, and everyone is allowed to see the Royals go past. As his career progresses, the view across the rooftops of Camberwell from a tiny office is exchanged for the grandiose perspectives of the palace designed for the British Medical Association by Lutyens, and eventually journalism and broadcasting become the author's metier. This volume has the same wit and appetite for the bizarre details of life that distinguished its predecessor.
